Whether purposefully chosen or not, your business runs off a series of systems. You can carefully select your systems and implement them to create a successful team or your systems will be developed by bad habits – lengthy meetings, missing deadlines, failing to engage with clients – conducted in the office. How your team operates is up to you and while we can’t force you to make (obviously needed) positive changes, we can tell you about the tools designed to organize your business to make your team more productive, keep your projects on schedule, and increase your revenue.
Happy Clients = Hopeful Future
When your clients and customers are happy, they return. Digital systems like Asana can be used to keep your team on track and complete projects by deadline. Asana is an online project management tool that helps organize your tasks, assign portions of the work to specific team members, and then track their progression through completion of the project. With Asana (or a system like it), you can:
- Host fewer meetings
- Recognize when dependencies will occur in project assignments
- Update the entire team with a digital message
- Modify project deadlines
With Asana Timeline, your team stays on track with a client’s work, maintaining a solid working relationship.
As a business owner and leader, you want your team to be empowered to make decisions and take control of their tasks without you checking in. With the help of an Online Business Manager (OBM), you can implement systems that allow you to step away from the business without worrying that everything you’ve achieved will fall apart while you’re on vacation.
An OBM will train staff on the new systems that are to be followed whether you’re there or not. With increased employee engagement, productivity surges, taking your business from good to unstoppable.
Strategic Approach To Mega Potential
Once you and your OBM have created and implemented the systems that help track projects, hold team members accountable, and ensure you meet deadlines, the path to uncapped potential becomes very clear. Business systems to consider for your startup:
- Lead Generation
- Customer Service
- Sales Conversion
- Inventory Management
Customize Your Automation
Technology can do a lot (trust us, we’re big fans!), but a personal touch is needed to set your brand apart from the competition. Not everything can be handled with the click of a button. Choose systems that allow for customization so you can express your brand’s voice.
Remember, there are times when an automated response simply won’t do the trick. Pick up the phone to build your partnership with clients, send a hand written thank you not to the loyal customer, and host a catered lunch for supportive community leaders.
Let Me Upgrade You
As technology advances and customer expectations shift, your systems must keep up. Upgrading business systems isn’t just for your team, it’s also key in staying ahead of the competition. Keep your team organized and on-task in an ever-changing environment. What systems do you have in place for your online business?
